FORT BAZAAR | GALLE FORT

Fort Bazaar is located within the 17th Century world heritage site of Galle Fort. In order to maintain the character of the property, the existing footprint of the site  was maintained and re-built along similar dimensions. The use of contemporary materials was limited, as we intended to remain true to building materials used within the Heritage site. 

The re-interpretation of the door and window stylings, the use of cut cement/patterned tiling for floors, the installation of tin ceilings with motifs along with a mix of modern furniture and wall elements helped give a contemporary edge to the property.

The Verandah was a highlight, creating the ability to enjoy the vibrant streetscape while influencing the inner workings of the building. Most of the older trees were retained, while the old banyan tree was an outdoor feature to which the courtyard was oriented towards. The project was both challenging and inspiring and PWA takes pride in being a part of preserving an architectural heritage.

KUMU BEACH | BALAPITIYA

The site which occupies an elevated strip of land has a unique panoramic view of the Indian Ocean. The main idea behind the design was to capture as much of the stunning view as possible. Simplicity of design and the almost symmetrical arrangement of spaces was partly inspired by traditional Sri Lankan Architectural typology.

A clear and clean palette of materials like timber, white cement and rough plastered walls was used to create a simple structure which merged with the landscape. The internal spaces all open out towards sea and the verandahs and walkways create a transition space which blurs the line between in and out. The two main pavilions accentuate the center of the property while the rooms and standalone suites hug the inward periphery of the land. This layout was used to provide maximum privacy to the guests as well as create informal spaces between rooms which had lush tropical planting and provided intermediate points of rest & interest. The totality of the design seeks to capture a simplicity of form which is subtle and timeless, from which the natural beauty of the site can be enjoyed to the fullest.
